I was able to get a game in this week, and I thought I would share the game and results with you all of you. The battle was set a 35 points the scenario was Overrun. In this scenario both players are trying to capture control points, you need 2 points to win and gain a point if you are in a 8″ wide 36″ long box and your opponent is not. Here were the lists
For my Skorne list I was playing the following
Titan Gladiator (8)
Titan Bronzeback (10)
Cyclops Savage (5)
10 swordsman +Ua (8)
6 Paingiver Beast Handlers (3)
Tyrant Radiem (5)
My Oppenent was playing circle and he fielded the following list.
Cassius The oathkeeper & wumpwood
10 man Niss Hunters
3 Tharn Wolf Riders
4 Gallows Grove ( these were proxied as they have not been released yet)
6 bone grinders
I won the roll but was still unpacking so I let him go first, He set his Niss Hunters up on my left flank, his Tharn Riders on the Right flank, the table was split with a nice river a hill on opposite corners and forests across from each hill. His caster was set up in the back of his zone with Wurmwood just inside the forest, his beasts were on the max line with the Wilder behind him, for his advance deployment models were the 4 gallows grove spread out across the board. The bone grinders stayed close to the caster
For my set up I had set the Brozeback and Gladiator across from his beasts, my swordsman were on my right flank and were the prey of the Riders, My caster was right behind the beasts with his Cyclops and Rhadiem just off to the left, I set the agonizer 4″ back of my caster and 1″ behind the Paingivers. eHexeris is able to bond with one of his beasts this allows him to channel spells through that beast, so I chose the Brozeback.
He ran both beasts, the niss hunters and the riders, I forgot how fast the riders were, so when they zipped up the right flank to look down the swordsman it was a bit intimidating. He teleported Gallows Grove 5 inches forward, the wilder moved up, while Cassius cast Unseen Path and moved into the forest to gain Def 16, Wurmwood cast Unseen Path and then teleported next to Cassius, this wrapped up his turn,
On my turn I shifted the swordsmen to the middle of the board and spread out, this was a mistake that I will never make again. Rhadiem and the Cyclops both walked there max movement, I ran both Titians up forward behind about 4″ behind the swordsman, Hexeris moved up and cast Ashen Vail on the swordsman this gave them concealment and – 2 to hit when with in 2″ of the unit. He then dumped 5 furry onto the agonizer.
He moved gallows groves 5″, then declared an assault on the swordsman, with concealment and he was with in 2″ they didn’t kill a single model with the shooting but made up for this with his assault attacks killing 3 swordsman. Next Megalith and the gorax both moved straight forward, megolith used geomancy and casted Hell Mouth on one of the swordsman once they moved to a nice compact circle around the original target he blew a hugh chunk of them away, leaving only 5 swordsman left. The nyss hunters declared combined ranged attack on Rhadiem and unmounted him, two more took pot shots at the savage doing no damage. His caster moved up and cast unseen path and moved wurmwood next to him. Moved up and cast arcane bolt killing 1 more swordsman.
In my turn, I was running short on the right flank, and the time to get to the middle was coming upon me, the swordsman charged the Riders and killed 1, I moved both Titans at 4″ up the middle into possition for charges and riled 2 furry on each beast, I moved the Paingivers up and gave the cyclops +2 strength and may charge for free, both Rhadiem and the Cyclops charged into the nyss hunters, the cyclops killed 4 and rhadiem killed 1. the agonizer ran forward to keep up to the beasts. eHexeris moved with in 8″ of the Brozeback and started throwing around spells, he started with Hellfire on the Riders, killing 1 and causing a command check and they passed. Next he failed to hit the nyss hunters with ashes to ashes, so I used his feat and reaved all of the furry from his beasts and 1 from my own. I then cast ashes to ashes on a nyss hunter who was surrounded by the bone grinders killing him and two bone grinders, hellfire was put on the nyss hunters killing 1 and leaving 1 alive he passed his command check. He scored 1 control point at the end of my turn because I had no models in the center of the box.
This is a lot of writing for anyone to digest so I will continue this tomorrow with another post, I apologize for the lack of pictures but I forgot my camera at home. Until tomorrow keep on rolling.
